Analysis of the Demand of Hydrogen as Fuel for Transport in the UAE

Student thesis: Master's Thesis


With the growing emphasis on building a green economy with low carbon footprint, UAE is gradually building a hydrogen economy through introducing hydrogen fuel for transport. Although hydrogen sources are abundant in the UAE, the supply-chain model is not in place. Given the cost sensitivity of hydrogen in relation to volumes produced, large consumption is essential to reduce the cost. In this work, we develop a system dynamics model that allow us to model a roadmap for deployment of hydrogen network in the UAE. We examined different policy incentives that inaugurate hydrogen fuel economy by testing three scenarios of fuel cell adoption in UAE.
